The 1970s were a time of change.
The Vietnam War was coming to an end, disco music was in full swing .
The United States had just elected its first president from California.
But one thing that didn’t change during this decade is the trend of people consuming canned beer at home or on-the-go.
In fact, it’s estimated about 60% of all beer consumed in America came from cans back then!
And while any can would do, there are several companies who made their mark with unique designs for these timeless containers.
One such company was Ball Corporation out of Muncie Indiana.
One such company was Ball Corporation out of Muncie Indiana – better known as Billy Beer Company Incorporated .
Which sold nearly one million cases of its namesake beer in 1974.
